Center Double Pg Gray Vol 1
Encased sheets of tinted ice continually painted four canvases, melting the dye through the stretched fabric along with the temperature fluctuations within each booth. Beneath each canvas, the droplets of tinted water were caught by a sound responsive metal sheath of piezos. The sound of each canvas was then modulated and redirected through headphones so the viewer could listen to the music of temperature dependant imagery developing.
